Festival Presentation: Ayurveda for the Yogi

Sunday October 28th 1:00 pm

Many of us have felt the healing power of yoga, and with the teachings of Ayurveda, we can take those gifts one step further. Ayurveda is the ancient healing system that grew up alongside Yoga thousands of years ago. Translated as "the science or knowledge of life," Ayurveda's emphasis is on health and preventing the imbalances that lead to disease. Ayurveda teaches HOW to be healthy according to your unique constitution and how to restore balance when life has gotten out of control. In this talk, you will learn the daily cycles of the three doshas (natural energy patterns), when these different energies naturally surge and fall within us. You will gain specific strategies to create sustained energy throughout the day, improve your digestion, and spontaneously deepen your yoga and meditation practices.
